A police officer is nursing injuries after he was attacked by a female curfew violator in Nairobi’s Lang’ata area on Saturday night.
The woman allegedly attacked and wounded the officer identified as Sergeant Moses after he asked her to explain why she was strolling outside beyond curfew hours.
A police report on the incident indicates that the cop was walking towards Bypass Patrol Base after 8 pm when he met the woman and sought to know where she was heading past curfew hours.
An exchange of words ensued before the enraged lady grabbed the officer’s head and bit off his ear.
“She bit his right ear cutting it completely. After noticing that she had injured the officer, she ran towards the river bordering Lang’ata and Kibera. The injured sergeant picked the piece of the ear which had fallen down and proceeded to Nairobi West Hospital,” reads the report.
He was admitted to the facility’s surgical ward where he is expected to undergo an operation to reconstruct the ear.
Police have opened a probe into the matter.
